Two Welwyn Garden City parks given Green Flag awards

TWO public parks in WGC have been recognised as quality green spaces - one for the tenth year running.

Both Stanborough Park, which is managed by Finesse Leisure, and the King George V Playing Fields, off Beehive Lane, retained the Green Flag awards they won in 2009.

And it was a double celebration for Stanborough Park as it claimed the gong for the tenth consecutive year.

The news was greeted warmly by Welwyn Hatfield Council.

Tony Kingsbury, executive member for leisure and community, said: “It is a great achievement for both parks to win this award.
